The five above strikes represent the eleventh through fifteenth to be issued in the America the Beautiful Quarters Program as well as the third year of the series which debuted in 2010. The reverse of each coin in the series features a different design emblematic of a selected site of national interest from around the United States and its territories.
Shown on the obverse of each America the Beautiful Coin is the same portrait of George Washington. The image of the first President of the United States was designed by John Flanagan for inclusion on the 1932 circulating quarter dollar and has been used, with minor variations, on the obverse of quarters ever since.
